It’s not exactly a huge surprise, but Avatar stars Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana are confirmed to be returning for James Cameron‘s Avatar 2, 3 and 4.

The pair join bad guy Stephen Lang, who until now was the only person to have confirmed a similar three-film deal for Cameron’s sci-fi re-imagining of Pocahontas.

As much as the first film was a runaway hit, it was very much of the moment. It’s been five years, and it does make us wonder if the clock is ticking for the franchise…

Pick up Avatar on DVD for £9.99 or on Blu-ray for £17.70 from Amazon.co.uk.
